. president obama was secretly telling dmitri medvedev to ignore all the election year politics, it's just politics. after that, the u.s. and russia could be great friends. maybe that wasn't it, maybe the flexibility he was speaking about was a great insult. a yo mama joke, perhaps, that would better explain what has happened since. relations are deteriorating at a very rapid pace. the president cancelled a planned meeting with russian president putin. the first time any american president has cancelled a publicly announced visit to russia since the end of the cold war. the white house explained the cancellation including, missile defense, and arms control, they cited russia's decision to thumb the u.s. in the eye by granting edward snowden temporary asylum. >> i was disappointed because even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or alleged law breaker in their country. we evaluate it and try to work with them, they didn't do that with us. >> that same interview, the president spoke out forcefully against russi

the race of these shooters in a way to sort of try to bait barack obama on race. let me play you some sound, clarence, and get your comment. >> trayvon martin here and in the rose garden. why the hasn't he spoken out on this in this case? you said there was a judicial proceeding. there was one in the trayvon martin case. he spoke out extensively on that one. >> there's the right directly trying to bait the president on race, a situation with the baseball player is already tragic. why do they seem so determined to also make it racial. >> they've been champing at the bit waiting for a case that would help them to problem the point that white people are not -- that their lives aren't as valued as much as black people's lives are, the exact opposite of what experience tells us. this case does not apply. people forgetting that in the trayvon martin case, the parents were upset that the suspect, zimmerman, was released without much suspicion at all. and that was when the state reopened the case and decided there was enough evidence to prosecute. what we're looking for here is equal justice. if th

an international norm, any decision by president obama to bomb syria will kill people. it will kill the guys working the night shift, people just doing their jobs to put food on their family tables. daddy who went to work that morning will not be coming home because of what this president decides to do. the assad family will be okay, of course. the designers of that vogue magazine spread won't be anguished by this sight of this thoroughly western family lying on the floor. no. the people who will die in an american cruise missile attack will be the working, praying, little family people whose husbands do the cut work. war sucks, even in neat little bite-sized act of war like the one that might come any day now. and yet, and yet, how do we avoid this flagrant reality if we don't? those deciding in tehran right now whether to build a nuclear bomb are looking to see what the people in washington are doing. if we threaten the country, if it uses one weapon of mass destruction and it goes ahead and ignores us, what worth does our threat hold against that other country deciding whether to build th
